Sunny Skirt

Added Oct 13, 2009

Singapore, Singa...






This is a skirt that I made in an afternoon for a friend’s party that I was attending that night. I had hoarded this fabric for a while and was waiting for the perfect project for it. I traced the basic pattern off a very narrow fitting pencil skirt that I had, and then added width at the centres of each of the skirt panel so that it would be looser fitting and I could add some casual pleats.
I’ve found the skirt so fun to wear and extremely flexible to style. I wore it through two summers [one Australian and one European] and am even wearing it in this wintry weather I’m getting in Berlin, just layering it with woolen stockings instead!

Unfortunately the only photo that I have at the moment is a travel photo, but I’ll add more soon.

Material Notes

Cotton, sourced from Spotlight though the print is very Marimekko inspired; upcycled zip from another skirt; sewing cottons




Garment Type
Casual, Classic
